Troubleshoot problems with voice mail
There are a few problems that might come up with your voice mail. This guide will help you troubleshoot the most common ones.
Callers can't leave a message
When you start up new voicemail service, you need to complete your mailbox setup before anyone can leave you a message. See our voice mail guide for complete instructions.
As you use your voice mail, your mailbox can get full, which will prevent callers from leaving new messages.
To delete old messages and make room for new ones:
Dial *98 from your home phone.
Press * to get to the Main Menu.
Press 1 to listen to messages
Press 7 at the end of a message to delete it
No "new message" indicator
You might have messages and not hear the stutter dial tone or see the message indicator light blinking. You can always check your mailbox to see if the messages you are expecting are actually there or not.
You may also want to check that your mailbox notification option for new messages is turned on.
Dial *98 from your home phone
Press * to get to the Main Menu
Press 4 for Mailbox Options
Press 1 for Notification Options
Press 1 to turn on Message Waiting Indicator
Message is chopped off
A single voice mail message has a maximum length. If someone leaves a message that is too long, it may get cut off. The voicemail system tells callers when the maximum length has been reach, and gives them the option to re-record, but occasionally callers miss this and leave the message as is. In that case the message will be cut off.
Other possible problems
Is there an answering machine connected to the same line?
An answering machine built into the phone could be interfering with your CenturyLink voice mail. Be sure to turn off the functionality of the answering machine. Check again after a power surge, which can turn on an answering machine that was previously turned off.
Is there too much "dead air" at the end of your voice mail greeting?
If there is too much of a pause after your greeting, people might not know to keep waiting for the beep and hang up.
To check if this might be happening, call your home number and listen to your voice mail greeting. Is there a long pause at the end of your greeting? If there is, try recording a new greeting, taking special care to press the # key immediately after finishing your greeting.
